I Tried All the Dating Apps and This Is My Favorite

My dating philosophy starts with giving a chance to the yeses and the maybes - and that goes for dating apps, too. I'll try 'em all. And a shout-out to those apps out there that are trying to break the mold, getting us all past the "hey, how are yous" and into the "you pick the movie, I'll pick the takeout" phase of life.

Here's to Hinge, branding itself as the relationship app where you have the opportunity for quippy captions and a video. Speaking of video, the entire premise of Ohi is that live action is better than photos; it gives you ONLY video to work with. The League wants to get rid of the riffraff, Tinder wants to get you laid, and so many more. I love the apps and the variety, but in the age of too many romantic prospects and not enough romance, Bumble is the app where I consistently find decent, polite gentlemen who are mature enough to operate on a site that encourages ladies to "make the first move."

Bumble. It's always been you, girl.

I think we can all agree that Bumble founder Whitney Wolfe gets a resounding "Yas, girl, yassss" for her general badassery when she left Tinder (which she also cofounded) to start a new dating app where women are in charge. That's a solid premise not only because it encourages men to behave a little better, but it also gives us a nice opportunity to dip our toe in and see if we like someone before we decide whether or not to engage. Though I have a very important confession to make: I never make the first move.
